March 2021 Maui Achievers Blog Hop

Thank you for joining us for our March Maui Achievers blog hop. Those hopping today are Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators from all around the world that have achieved the prestigious Stampin' Up! Incentive trip. We will be hopping together once a month to show you ideas and designs using current Stampin' Up!® products. I live in Minnesota in the US and would love to help you if you have any questions.

You may just be starting the blog hop here at my blog - Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity or may have come from the person previous to me in the list.  If you get off track at any time, the full lineup below will help you move along from blog to blog so you see all the fun. At the moment you are visiting Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity.  Our hop theme is "Current Products"!

For today's card I used the Vine Design Bundle from Stampin' Up!  I love the die cuts, they are so floral and beautiful.  The colors are Soft Sea Foam, Rich Razzleberry and the Hydrangea Mercury Glass Designer Acetate.
I die cut using the mercury glass.  One tip: remove the clear film from the back side before die cutting ;)  I also added a few of the Pastel Pearls to the floral die cut for a finishing touch.

Thanks for taking part in our blog hop, there are so many amazing ideas and inspiration you don't want to miss.  Remember that currently you are at my blog: Jennifer Michalski @ Stamping Serenity, so check the blog hop line up list to see who is next.

Waterfall Card for Creative Creases Challenge #3
Today I played along with the Creative Creases Challenge #3.  Because fun folds are not limited to just cards, don’t be afraid to submit your 3D projects, just make sure that your work involves paper and stamps.
For this fun challenge I used the stamp set called Friends Are Like Seashells!  And I made a fabulous Waterfall Card.  I was inspired to make this type of fun fold card by fellow demonstrator Melissa Seplowitz at The Stamping Ninja.  I love the beach and these seashells and sentiments are so much fun from Stampin' Up!
The colors of the Sand & Sea design series paper has such soft colors. Thanks for stopping by and letting me share the joy of stamping with you.

Stampin' Pretty Pals March Blog Hop

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “Cute Critters” – showcasing their card/project with adorable animals, birds, or insects for any occasion. We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

For today's project I used a mix of the old and new butterflies.  The old is actually the current Beauty Abounds stamp set and Butterfly Beauty Dies.  The new is the Butterfly Bijou Design Series Paper.  This ds paper has a gorgous mix of colors to work with.  I die cut the small butterflies using the rainbow glimmer paper.  The sentiment is punched out using the double oval punch.
The inside showcases a bit more of the Butterfly Bijou Design Series Paper.  The inside sentiment comes from the stamp set called Welcoming Window and is punched out using the double oval punch as well.  I hope you enjoyed this fun project.  Thanks for stopping by.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Mark your calendars for our next blog hop on April 14th when our theme is “Great Family Occasions” when our Design Team creates a project for any special occasion. Don’t miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft space.
